@K7scooter -- which keyboard keys were pressed, in what order, when the Russian password was entered?
Can you press the same keys, in the same order?
It is Windows (which is not yet loaded into your RAM) that defines which character to display on your screen when you press a specific key on your keyboard.
For example, the "Nordic" keyboard has keys labelled: ä å æ ø
instead of being labelled as "colon/semi-colon" and "quote/apostrophe", and so on.

100% I know the password and it’s correct. The only problem and explanation that I can accept is that when u choosing for example Russian language of your bios or Italian or it doesn’t matter witch - u starting input password in same language. And if u will change your bios language after that setup - your password will be always wrong bcs u will use different keyboard to input it.
it looks like a bug in the system witch I accidentally found but understanding of this isn’t makes me feel good 🙂 I want to fix this.
So the question is next one: how to change language input?

@K7scooter -- So the question is next one: how to change language input?
On some computers, when you enter BIOS SETUP, the first thing that you need to do is to select a language.
But, that choice of language changes only the displayed text on each menu.
It does not make any assumption about which keyboard that you are using: Russian, Nordic, German.
I still think that you should "touch-type" the BIOS password -- press the same keyboard keys, in the same order as the Russian-speaking user did when they created the password. For example, with a German keyboard, and if you have told Windows that you have that German keyboard, pressing the key to the left of the "W" key will show a "Z" on your screen. The keyboard sends the same codes to the motherboard, whether the key is labelled "Q" or "Z". It's up to Windows to decide to display "Q" or "Z".
But, since Windows is not yet running, such interpretation of what key-press shows what character is not available.
Do you have the password, written in Cyrillic?
Here is the Russian letters a-through-z --->
